Matt & Victoria – One Year Anniversary
April 9, 2019
Highlands Ranch, Colorado

What fun it was to get to celebrate a year of marriage with these two! Matt & Victoria have had a pretty big first year of marriage – they bought a house, honeymooned in Thailand, got two kittens, starred in A Chorus Line (Victoria), won the President’s Award for being awesome at his job (Matt), and grew together in love. {I’m their older sister so I get to brag on them, it’s my right} When Victoria asked me if it was crazy to think of wearing her wedding dress for this shoot, I was quick to encourage her to do it! How often do you ever get to wear your wedding dress again? And look this amazing?! It was perfect for using a historical mansion as the venue and brought some serious princess vibes. From taking their engagement photos to getting to take some to celebrate one year of marriage, I feel so blessed to have both of them in our lives.

It’s such a joy to get to be on the adventure of parenthood with friends! I am so excited for our dear friends, Kevin & Brittany, on the birth of their sweet baby girl. I had the huge privilege of taking some of their wedding photos back in 2016, so getting to capture another huge milestone for them is truly so special. Little Raegan decided she wanted to come early, and hasn’t even reached her due date yet! She’s tiny and precious and I can’t wait to watch her grow. I know for sure that she will be surrounded with love.

It’s SO fun to get to see families start and grow. Jameson and my husband have been friends for close to a decade now, so we’ve had the privilege of getting to see Jameson and Rachel go from dating, to married, to starting their own little family of three. Wandering around the grounds of a historic mansion with friends and capturing this huge milestone is definitely my idea of a good Saturday morning. I’m so excited to meet this little guy in February!

Centennial, Colorado

The last time I did photos for this family, they were making a pretty big announcement. Now fast forward eight months and I was asked to take family photos of them with their sweet new baby boy. It’s so fun to get to see families grow through this job and getting to spend a morning chatting about babies, watching my son play with Zoey between shots and admiring a sweet six-week old was my kind of Friday. Especially at 36 weeks pregnant myself!

Can we talk about how completely photogenic this family is for a second? In all the shots that I took, there wasn’t an unflattering one in the bunch. Which is really impressive with a two-year-old in tow. We met Mike, Jenn and Zoey through some of our best friends, and have gotten to know them while celebrating birthdays, watching football, and exchanging cookies at Christmas. It was so fun to get to do this session, both because we got to chat while we walked around the park, but also because I got to take part in a special announcement!

Because my husband is the oldest sibling in his family, I’ve been able to watch his siblings grow up over the course of our relationship. Matt celebrated his 15th birthday the first time I came to Colorado, and since then I’ve watched him graduate high school and college, work incredibly hard to get a great job, and now, find the love of his life.  It’s been SO fun. One thing I have learned about Matt over the course of this time, and especially when he lived with us for a while after graduating college, is that he’s a total romantic. I knew that when Matt found the right girl, he’d fall hard, he’d fall fast and she would be showered with love and grand gestures. The first time he brought Victoria “home” to meet us was the day he hatched an elaborate plan to officially ask her to be his girlfriend. She was smiling from ear-to-ear and I’m not sure she’s stopped since. The next year would take them on romantic trips celebrating obscure Canadian holidays that share Victoria’s name, meeting and charming each other’s families, and just falling deeper and deeper in love. Victoria is an absolutely lovely person, and easily won over this sister-in-law during our lunch dates and through her absolute adoration of my brother-in-law and my son (pro tip: to make moms love you, love their kiddos well – Victoria did this from day one). I can’t wait for Victoria and Matt’s April wedding and the completion of the Rabon brother’s wives trifecta.

This beautiful family has been with Amanda Rabon Photography from the beginning. I’ve photographed them four times now: when Lily was 6 months, 9 months, 1 year old  and now at 3 years old. I couldn’t be more honored to have been able to document Lily growing up and now, to document the family growing! As you’ll see in the pictures below, Lily is making a big announcement!

One of my very favorite things that I’ve gotten through marriage is more siblings. Growing up, my brother was my absolute best friend. And now, I’m blessed to have two more brothers, three more sisters and one more soon-to-be-sister.

I especially love having a sister that I can text and say something along the lines of “I’m obsessed with a wall in the mountains and I want to take photos there. Are you in?” And we jump in the car, take photos between which we laugh hysterically, and eat mountain pies at Beau Jo’s.

Thanks for a fun adventure, Rebekah!

I was put into contact with this lovely family through some mutual friends of ours who know them from being stationed together with the Air Force. Tara, her husband, and kiddos were in town for Christmas and her mom wanted family pictures as her gift. This family was not only super photogenic, but as sweet as can be as well. The Colorado weather kept changing every few minutes from overcast to sun, but despite the chilly air, they kept on smiling and having a good time. There was even a dance party to Justin Timberlake at the end!

This delightful couple and their English bulldog were so fun to get to know a little bit. Dave is the brother of Phil, whose family photos I did in October, so getting to meet him and his wife, Michele, was a treat. Their pup, Mack, was a total pro at posing and though Colorado weather kept us on our toes, we were able to get some lovely photos of this beautiful family.
